Monday Must-Have: The Oversized Knit

It has cooled down substantially here in the UK and so now it’s time to start thinking about those snuggly autumn/winter knits. This year it’s all about the oversized knit, with more fitted bottoms, be it a pencil skirt for work, or your favourite pair of skinnies. This week I’m going in a little bit of a different direction by showing you a designer knit, that I adore. This Chalayan jumper via designer boutique Avenue 32 is the perfect example of the oversized knit in action, and this type of knit is bound to be hitting the high street very soon too!


I love the gorgeous structure of the jumper which is classic Hussein Chalayan design, and the idea of rolling the sleeves as you can see in the model photo. You could be super directional and team this with chequered or tartan cigarette pants for an on-trend fashion week inspired look. Searching for great knits like this in black too would add a more grungy vibe to your outfit. With a multitude of ways to wear it, the oversized knit is a staple for this autumn/winter and with snow expected mid-October, there’s never been a better time to splurge!


If this look is right up your street, then you can check out the whole Chalayan collection on Avenue 32 here for more great buys and inspiration. Chalayan’s urban-street meets couture tailoring is bang-on for this season, just don’t forget to team it with a tonne of punky accessories to edge it up. A spiked statement necklace would look amazing thrown over this oversized knit too!

That’s it for today’s post, let me know what you think of today’s pick by leaving me a comment below and/or tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time…
